Reimagining neurosurgery care
Neurosurgery care at Geisinger
When you need a neurosurgeon, our compassionate team is here for you every step of the way. From common to complex neurological conditions, our neurosurgery team uses the latest imaging technology and treatment methods — including minimally-invasive surgery and laser surgery, intra-arterial catheterization for blood pressure monitoring and neuromodulation to monitor nerve activity during surgery — to provide you with a comfortable experience and quicker recovery, so you can return home as soon as possible.
Because neurological conditions can affect different areas of your life and body, we work closely with other departments and specialists to provide you with the most comprehensive care possible. Some of the teams we work with include:
- Otolaryngology (ENT)
- Behavioral health
- Pain management
- Sleep medicine
Personalized approach to care
Through cross-department conference boards and clinics, we collaborate with experts in other fields to create a personalized approach to your care. You'll also work with a nurse navigator and care management specialist as part of your care team to help provide a holistic approach to your condition and treatment.
While you'll have access to clinical research trials, we also partner with research specialists for initiatives like MyCode, which analyzes your DNA for genetic changes that can help your doctors with your diagnosis and treatment.
